Why Cindy chose Captiva Island

We vacationed in Captiva before and fell in love with the overall ease and simplicity to the Island. When we came back a second time, we knew we wanted to buy and share the opportunity that we have so enjoyed.

What makes this villa unique

The simplicity and ease of Captiva is worth noting. Everything is within walking distance, if you're not into walking, there are bike rentals avaialble as well. When you go to the beach, all activities are available within a short walk. We have enjoyed nightly walks on the beach watching the sun dip beneath the depths of the ocean followed by ice cream cones at La-Tee-Da's. The marine life is amazing to say the least We have experienced how mollusks move, to seeing big crabs in conch shells, dolphins, stingrays, jellyfish, and even manatees. Where else can you go in the lower 50 states and encounter all this wonderful marine life in one day!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us for our family vacation. We enjoyed it so much and have many memories from our time spent there. My favorite features were the spacious, well equipped kitchen where we enjoyed fresh seafood from the ocean and mangos found right outside of the villa. I loved the tile floors, custom architectural details, and high end furnishings. I also loved the lanai area, such a peaceful place to relax and unwind. My daughter loved her very own walk in closet and bathroom. My son and daughter squabbled a bit over that bedroom, but my daughter who once asked us to extend the end of our house so that she could have a walk in closet eventually won out. The wagon equipped with all of the beach essentials was a definite plus when going to the beach. The beach access was wonderful, almost like having our own private beach. I also appreciated the landscaping and ongoing maintenance that the property receives. One of my favorite memories was painting with my children in the outside lanai area while watching the cute lizards scurry around. All of fans and trees in the lanai area provided a cool place to be outdoors in the summer sun. We look forward to a future visit someday. We thank you again

My family and I have now stayed at the Villa Elena twice and the second was better then the first. It is the perfect house for your family. Our family arrived on Nov 5 and Our children left on Monday nov 9 but we opted to stay till Sat. With or without our children we loved every minute of our stay. The pool and the amenities filled all our needs.
Once again my husband's family were down staying at various places on the island but everyone loved coming to the villa Elena !!! The screened in porch is the best room in the house!

Absolutely Wonderful for our wedding!

  • 5 of 5
I just saw the reviews section on this site as I began planning our tenth wedding anniversary. My wife and I rented Villa Elena in June of 2005, were married on the beach across the road and had our small reception back at the house. It was perfect. I only hope I can now book the home for next year on our tenth anniversary! Nobody take the week of June 27th to July 4th please! :)

Villa Elena Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous stay at Villa Elena. 3 of my favorite girlfriends and I went to celebrate our birthdays together basking in the sun and enjoying charming Captiva. The house was beautiful, comfortable, well-supplied, and in a perfect location. We appreciated the beach chairs and umbrella for our short walks to the beach and enjoyed relaxing in the private pool each day. An excellent stay overall!

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Villa Ellena is a beautiful home! We have rented houses before that did not live up to the pictures and claims on their websites, but Villa Ellena exceeded our expectations. The setting is very tropical and the grounds are beautifully maintained. Although it is not on the beach, it really is just a short walk and once on the beach, you will have it practically all to yourself! The swimming pool at the house was wonderful and we enjoyed it as much as the beach. The only disappointment we had was that the boat dock was not very easy to access. We had brought our canoe, hoping to be able to use it in the bay, but it was too far for us to carry it to the dock, especially since you have to walk through other homeowner's properties. We would love to stay at this home again sometime and highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our home and for the wonderful review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We apologize for your troubles in accessing the dock. We will be more diligent in asking our guests if they plan on bringing their own recreation items to enable us to make arrangements for easier dock access to accommodate their needs. We look forward to having you and your family as our guests again in the future!

We enjoy eating at the Bubble Room and booking our deep-sea expeditions at Tween Waters. Ask for Jimmy, he is a fantastic guide. You can also book a shelling excursion at Tween WatersJ as well and they can take you to a secluded beach for shelling. While you are here for your visit, take a drive to the Sanibel Marina and take the Sanibel Thriller ride. It's a high speed pontoon boat that takes you around to see the sights of both Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Have your cameras ready to snap photos of the dophins that come and play in the waves of the boat. I can't forget the manatees and the sea turtles too! The Shell Museum is a must see with all the wonderful kinds of shells found throughout the world. They will send your kids on a hunt to find certain shells, once they have completed their search, they will be rewarded by the hostess! The night life on Andi Rossi lane is great. Great food, fun, and atmosphere and don't forget to include a sunset stroll on the beach!
